our story

Behind every great brand is an even greater story

the story behind southern creative

Whenever we work with a new brand, we strive to fully immerse ourselves into the vision, mission, and client experience.

We get it. Handing over the reins to a business you have poured your heart and soul into isn't easy, which is why with every brand we partner with we treat it as our own.

Every business, no matter if you are running the show wearing all the hats or surrounded by an amazing team, should be backed with a brand and website that is not only scroll-stopping but also searchable.

Every business owner should feel confident with the tech that is running behind the scenes of their brand, instead of one that has you hiring a developer at every turn.

cue the casual introductions

Stephanie Okeefe, Owner Of Southern Creative Sitting On Kitchen Counter.

I love timeless design, neutral color palettes and I truly believe you are worthy of a website that works for you 24/7.

When I'm not behind the computer dreaming up website strategies with some of the best humans across the globe - you can find me in the kitchen, in the garden or exploring nature with my boys.

After going full circle from marketing to teaching, I have found my perfect fit of creativity & strategy as a website designer, developer, and seo strategist.

Rewind a decade or so; you'd find me sitting in business school questioning if I wanted a 9-5 cubicle in my future (spoiler alert - I did not!) Fast-forward through a few career shifts to today, and you'll find me sparking my creativity by reading the latest edition of Magnolia and collaborating with some fabulous service providers.
